I like to work in “Series”, that is, a collection of pieces of art that have a common theme. Some of the collections I have created are:
“Icons”... famous celebrities and Artists—painted from black and white photographs which I translate into color squares of various colors, usually with a definite color palette in mind.
“Rock, Paper, Scissors”... based on a hand game usually played between two people. I use different variations and combinations of the three items in complementary color palettes.
“Shadow Box”...a series of still lifes inside of a shadow box with a single light source.
Although I work in a number of mediums (Pastel, Watercolor, Gouache, Charcoal, Pen & Ink, Etching and Fresco), my main focus remains oil painting. I continue to study the methods and techniques of the masters Rembrandt, Velasquez as well as Sargent, Zorn and Sorolla.
